Canteen Food Hall, formerly the Carnival World Buffet, opens Jan. 19 in the Rio, continuing the Las Vegas trend of converting onetime casino buffets into food halls, opening food halls in casinos instead of buffets or launching them as independent destinations.

The trend now encompasses Proper Eats Food Hall (once The Buffet) in Aria, Promenade in the new Fontainebleau tower, Eat Your Heart Out at the new Durango casino in southwest Vegas, The Sundry food hall in UnCommons, Fremont Food Hall (built atop what used to be parking) at the Fremont, Famous Food Street Eats in Resorts World, Eataly in Park MGM, and Block 16 Urban Food Hall in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, the OG food hall in the city.
